#GivingTuesday donations: Efficient and effective

While I was growing up, being efficient was something to aspire to.

I vividly remember getting dressed for hockey while still in the car so I could just lace up the skates and jump on the ice. My mom taught me to consider it a win if you get through grocery shopping without going through an aisle twice.

I still love efficiency. Such as mowing the lawn this time of year. Not only am I cutting the grass, I’m also vacuuming the leaves. If only I could grab the acorns at the same time …


Efficiency is one of the things I like best about the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund. Bundling training with loans to borrowers is one of the keys to their success. The education helps them be better borrowers and make better financial decisions--now and in the future.

Every cent of every gift to the Community Loan Fund goes toward borrowers, either by becoming part of our loan pool or by providing the credit coaching, technical assistance, and mentoring that come with the financing. Giving to the Community Loan Fund is the height of giving efficiency.

For this #GivingTuesday, one of our board members will match, dollar for dollar, the first $3,000 we raise. So, giving just got even more efficient! Now a $100 donor doubles their impact on a family trying to buy their first home and escape the rental cycle. A neighbor who donates $50 has $100 of impact on a local business as it expands and adds jobs.

Give to the Community Loan Fund on #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28, and feel the efficiency. You’re maximizing your donation’s impact by having it matched, and you’re strengthening New Hampshire’s communities for yourself and your neighbors.

If only your gift could help with those darn acorns…

Opportunity. For all.
